    The Appalachian School of Law (ASL) is a fully-accredited private law school on a four building campus in Grundy, Virginia, a small town near the convergence of Virginia, Kentucky, and West Virginia. The school offers a three-year Juris Doctor degree, and enrolls approximately 370 full-time students. The law school was founded in 1994 and it admitted its first class of students in August 1997. ASL was started and brought to Buchanan County, Virginia as a tool of economic development for the region. The school is fully accredited by the American Bar Association. ASL is notable for its focus to community service and leadership, emphasizing professional responsibility and alternative dispute resolution in its curriculum and requiring students to complete 25 hours of community service per semester in order to graduate. Each student is also required to complete an externship before graduation. ASL was also the site of a triple homicide that took place on January 16, 2002.

    Prospective Students

    Nestled in downtown Grundy amidst the majestic Central Appalachian mountains, the Appalachian School of Law provides an exhilarating, yet challenging environment to pursue the Juris Doctorate degree. Our new campus, marked by traditional architecture, contains modern classrooms, seminar rooms, moot court rooms, lounge and offices; state of the art computers and interactive communications technology; and a solid, growing library collection.

    We are proud of the faculty led by Dean Clinton W. (Wes) Shinn. Committed to excellent teaching, these faculty members who have been recruited nationally will guide your study of the theory and practice of law. The talented library staff provides extensive services. Our relatively small size fosters close relationships among students, faculty, and staff members.

    In addition to providing the foundation knowledge and skills essential for taking the bar examination and beginning practice, the curriculum and co-curricular activities are designed to prepare you for leadership and service in the twenty-first century. Problem solving skills, ethical behavior, and professional responsibilities extend beyond the practice of law to all aspects of the community.

    On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I invite you to join our community of learning and continue your preparation for a career in the field of law.

    Dean Clinton W. Shinn
    Chief Operating Officer and Dean, Appalachian School of Law
